In 2012/13, I was tasked to help establish a whole new government funding scheme, namely the Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development (SIE) Fund, with an aim to provide impetus to propel the development of social entrepreneurs and build the local social innovation ecosystem. At the time, the government had been providing resources to fund and support the development of the social enterprise sector for almost a decade. The staunch support from the government had already enabled the social enterprise sector to flourish and gain recognition generally in Hong Kong.
There is a common, grass root concern and why we at Shared Value Project Hong Kong (SVPHK) are advocating that big business engage and identify the opportunities. How can I get my company to adopt a shared value business strategy?
